Looks superb, make sure you store it in a warm place. My gearbox etc has been tarnished over a few years of storage, going to clean it up with some nylon brushes.

Thanks Jase, I sprayed the everything with ACF50 and hope that keeps it clean and mark free. Its covered in sheets in storage at the rear of my garage. The bores were well lubricated, plugs fitted and rockers not setup so all valves are closed. Would you recommend turning it over every now and then or just leave it??

Well, I just left mine there thinking I would come back to a lot quicker, 7 years later and I'm digging it out. I just left it, seems okay but a lot of the alloy has 'corroded' so a bit of work there. I did cover it though so fingers crossed.

I have been reading your project and thats a shame with the engine, I might drag mine back out and spray even more ACF50 on it just in case. Never tried the stuff before so i hope it works.

 

7 years is not that long in a mini rebuild world..

It is cleaning up fairly well, popped it back into the corner though for the winter and lack of time.

CR = volume chamber + volume swept
Divided by volume chamber

CR= vc + vs / vc

🤘

I found this a good guide to CR
